  • It was actual North Lyon County Fire’ Rescue 62 (Tim (paramedic), Ryan and Ron (Advanced EMTs) that came upon the accident scene. Without radio communication (dead spot), R62’s personnel had to use their cell phones to contact Lyon County dispatch, establish command, and request resources. R62 helped locate the body about a 1,000 feet west of where the motorcycle was found. TV News 4 NBC’ video shows R62 parked on the eastbound Painted Onramp near the lifeless body.

    • Any info released as to who the victim was….name or age? Resident of Fernley?
